Retired Law Enforcement Training and Qualification

The Highlands Ranch Law Enforcement Training Facility hosts quarterly H.R. 218 firearms qualifications for retired law enforcement personnel. The qualification range dates will be held on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please check the HRLETF web site for actual range dates.

Active firearms instructors from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to conduct the qualifications and provide successful participants with signed and dated qualification receipts.

You will need to provide your own firearm/s and ammunition and be a Colorado resident. You may qualify with a maximum of two guns per qualification day. You MUST have your current retired Law Enforcement picture credentials or a letter from a qualifying LEA that you left in good standing to present to an instructor prior to firing the H.R.218 qualification course of fire.

There will be a $40.00 fee for this service and payment must be made to an instructor before a qualification is completed. Payment can be in the form of a personal check or exact cash and will be paid to an instructor on the day of qualification. Checks will be made out to the Highlands Ranch Law Enforcement Training Foundation.

As of November 4, 2017 the  Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will collect a $13 fee for an annual background check through CBI. This will be collected at the Sheriff’s Office at the time of the new or renewal application. Payment for this service will be made to Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in the form of cash, check or credit card.
